Plow the roads

What's with the snow removal this year? It seems almost nonexistent in unincorporated Salt Lake County. Not only has our street not been plowed for the past two snowstorms, but major roads like 3300 South have also been neglected. Hours after Monday's snow had ceased, as commuters headed for work, it was still unplowed and unsalted.

We remember when we could count on our side streets being plowed quickly and well, no matter the size of the storm. Now, we just get excuses. Our county taxes just went up and our services have gone down. Sounds about right.

Let's let the county Public Works Department know of our frustration.
